Family Dollar was well-supplied with African American Fashion Stylist dolls but I already had dolls with that face so I opted for the smoldering Latina:
The doll came with several animal print outfits plus there were some $5 fashion packs with several more.
My tiger lady is a Kid Connection doll from Walmart.
She came in a pack of six princesses. There were no black princesses in the bunch but you seldom see a brown-eyed brunette doll and the princess in the harem pants on the left has an ethnic look.
In 2012 Kid Connection did release a six pack of ethnic princesses. I reviewed them in "Proletarian Princesses." Unfortunately those dolls were still suffering from the effects of the Recession. Their bodies looked emaciated and they were made of cheap, hollow plastic.

This newer batch of Kid Connection princesses has vinyl legs with click knees and a sturdy body equivalent to a Mattel bellybutton Barbie.

Walmart is also selling Kid Connection dolls that come with a wardrobe. I thought this Goth rocker was the most interesting:
I plan to review her outfits later so she donned a Lovely Patsy frock for this post:
Her dark hair and strong features give her a very distinctive look.
"Oh my!" I thought when I first saw this leopard print coat in the Lovely Patsy Fashion Stylist packs. While it is lined, I was disappointed to find that the construction quality is poor and the fabric feels more like a bathrobe than a luxurious fur.
Still the ethnic princess from the Kid Connection princess pack is working it!
